As a matter of fact, downshifting the S65 when being driven aggressively on the Stelvio was pretty cool. It's almost like BMW miniaturized a racing driver and put him in the computer for those folks who never learned how to heel-and-toe a manual transmission, just so they could have the experience. I wouldn't mind standing by the side of the road to hear it from outside. I may do just that when the car gets back to SoCal. Therre's a well-known run up a certain mountain in San Diego County that would provide an ideal venue...

My 2014 ED trip report: Born Yesterday - 3rd ED off to a (mostly) flawless start

My 2011 ED trip report: Second ED off and running... after a brief interruption

My 2008 ED trip report: "Thirteen months, 135 miles and wha....?"
